Asked Dec 30, 2019

which of the following species is diamagnetic in nature:

a   H2

b   H2^-

c   H2^+


Expert Answer

Step 1

The species is determined to be diamagnetic if only pairing occurs and electrons present in the orbitals are paired that results to give total spin as 0.

Step 2

In H2 the number of electrons present is 2 which have possibility of having paired electrons.

In H2- the number of electrons present is 3 w...
